Subject: Computer Generated Speech
The computer generated speech is stilted, annoying, and difficult to follow for more than a few minutes. There are better spoken versions available, if you prefer to listen or are unable to read text.

Subject: The Book of Urantia
I think that this is probably the most important book that I've ever read. To accept this book, you must accept the premise that Extraterrestrials do in fact exist and have been HERE for a very long time. That makes this book more important than the bible or any book written by man ( for this book was written by Extraterrestrials themselves.)

This book answers many of the questions about evolution and religions that have not been answered, or even asked before. Life on Earth is much more incredible than certain circumstances of time and probability can account for. We are the product of the science and art of a very ancient race, or races, of Extraterrestrials beings who have established Earth as an experimental habitat closed to any other Universal influence, except maybe for those who created us.

This book was obviously written by some very intelligent people. This book is very difficult to read and is much easier to understand in its audio format. I would suggest that the listener use software that slows the recording down a little to make it easier to consume and to digest. Oh, an interesting point I should make is that the narrater of this book is a computer!

This book describes Universal civilizations and Gods place in it. It also describes the creation of Earth and of humanity. A very interesting section of this book describes the life of Jesus, which is so reasonable and logical that its veracity is difficult to not accept. This book is so entirely logical that I must place it beyond just faith and accept it as truth.

This is not a book for everyone, but it should be.

Glad to hear the fifth epochal revelation on the funny computer voice...some words dont come out right, the computer genererated voice being pretty dated, but the sense is there most of the time. Loved it!
